This new pizza spot on 17th Avenue S.W. is fast becoming the go-to alfresco dining spot of the summer. While you can sit inside, the expansive patio beckons to anyone craving a beer and a slice of Roman-style pizza. There are nearly 20 pizza flavours to choose from, including the Diablo with pepperoni, jalapenos, mozzarella, hot honey and Parmigiano. Get it by the slice (if available) or order a half-metre or metre pie to share with friends.

Located on Stephen Avenue, FinePrint recently launched a new spring/summer menu that’s full of tempting appetizers, mains and desserts. Start your meal off right with the seared Hokkaido scallops, featuring roasted onion soubise, miso tahini and a skewer of grilled cabbage, before digging into a plate of the gnocchi lumiére or lamb chops. Save room for the chocolate espresso cheesecake at the end.

Can’t have gluten? Not a problem at Misoan, a gluten-free bakery that recently opened in the Beltline. Along with whole cakes and honey bread, the shop makes conveniently sized cube cakes that would be just right for one or two people to dig into. The cube cakes come in five flavours: Strawberry, black sesame, Earl Grey, matcha and mocha.

If classic and creative tropical cocktails are your jam, pay a visit to Prosperity Bar in Chinatown. While there are a variety of drinks to choose from, you can’t go wrong with the wonderfully named Golden Girl cocktail, which combines different rums with banana and cinnamon. Pair your drink with some Big Mac egg rolls and shrimp rangoons.
